Youngsters from Lynn’s Howard Junior School are pictured in their wellies and helping to plant more than 100 trees at the RSPCA East Winch Wildlife Centre.
The visit last week was organised by the Country Trust to give both children and teachers a chance to learn about environmental issues from the experts.
Alison Charles, centre manager, said: “We are delighted to have teamed up with the Country Trust to offer schoolchildren educational visits to our centre where they can learn more about the work we do and how they, too, can help wildlife. It is great that they helped us plant some of the many trees which have been donated to us from DEFRA.
“We planted them in one of our fields with the aim to enrich the site and encourage more wildlife to the area. We hope this will be the first of many visits organised through our work with the Country Trust.”
The donation was part of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ Big Tree Plant Scheme.
